Peoria Beats North Chicago to Win Boys 3A Title
PEORIA, Ill. (AP) -- Aldonis Foote scored 17 points to lead Peoria to the Class 3A boys basketball state championship over North Chicago, 72-64.

It's the fifth boys basketball state title in school history.

Trey Kellum had 14 and Jerrell White chipped in 13 for Peoria (28-3).

Foote was all over the court early in the game, making steals, blocks, dunks and generally causing havoc for the Warhawks (25-7), who finished fourth in the 2011 state championships. The 6-foot-5 senior scored seven of the Lions first 11 points.

Kellum added 15 rebounds and White had nine assists.

Aaron Simpson scored 26 to lead North Chicago (25-7). Javairius Amos-Mays added 17 points and eight rebounds, and Kurt Hall chipped in 11 points and eight rebounds as well.
